Fox’s Judge Napolitano reacts to Mueller press conference

Politicians and pundits on both sides of the aisle have been spending much of the weekend dissecting former special counsel Robert Mueller’s press conference from earlier this week. It was Mueller’s first time speaking publicly about the investigation since the release of the Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election, commonly referred to as the Mueller Report.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano appeared on Stuart Varney’s program shortly after the event to weigh-in on the controversy. According to Napolitano, the press conference was not good news for the president.

Napolitano suggested that Muller’s public comments were even stronger than the language found in the report. Based on Mueller’s statements throughout the event, Napolitano claimed the former special counsel may be attempting to imply the president committed some kind of crime.

“Basically he’s saying the president can’t be indicted, otherwise we would have indicted him, and we’re not going to charge him with a crime because there’s no forum in which for him to refute the charges, but we could not say that he didn’t commit a crime — fill in the blank, because we believe he did,” Napolitano told Varney.

Napolitano also suggested the press conference was a way for Mueller to take a jab at Attorney General William Barr. Barr had previously delivered his own interpretation of the Mueller Report findings, which Napolitano claimed was significantly different in tone than Mueller’s.

The 22-month-long investigation began in May of 2017 in response to allegations of alleged collusion between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign. Although several individuals were charged with crimes throughout the investigation, cooperation between Russia and the Trump campaign was not identified.

President Trump responded to the press conference on Twitter over the course of several days, saying the case has now been closed. The president also suggested Mueller has a personal vendetta against him as the result of being turned down for the role of FBI Director.
